Re: French books on the 1939-1940 fighting

The RAF recorded a loss of just under 900 aircraft in the period from 10 May to 12 June 1940. Of that number 318 were Hurricanes and 143 Spitfires, the balance being a mix of Fairey Battle, Wellington, Blenheim, Boulton Paul Defiant and some FAA aircraft.

106 fighters alone were lost over Dunkirk.
